Red Bee wins Five VOD deal

Broadcast services provider Red Bee Media has been selected by UK broadcaster Five to manage its video-on-demand services, including content distribution to the Demand Five platform, and the syndication, live streaming, content management and delivery of the broadcaster’s original full-length progammes to YouTube in the UK.

Red Bee will manage all video content and metadata for Five, receiving and distributing content via its Media Gateway file acceleration platform. It said it would transcode to multiple platform formats, enhancing the content by adding idents and on-screen graphics, and manipulating the associated metadata to allow a streamlined and tape-less workflow.
